The market is also projected to witness growth in the healthcare, retail, and IT & telecom verticals during the forecast period.

Application Security Market

North America is expected to hold the largest market share and dominate the application security market from 2016 to 2021, due to the presence of a large number of application security vendors. Asia-Pacific (APAC) offers potential growth opportunities, due to rise in Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend in SMEs and large enterprises, which has led to the rise in the usage of portable devices and safeguarding the applications running on them from vulnerabilities.

The lack of application security expertise and usage of insecure cryptographic storages are some of the challenges in the market. The major vendors in the market include IBM Corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, WhiteHat Security, Veracode, Qualys, Checkmarx, Rapid7, and Trustwave, among others. These players adopted various key strategies such as new product developments, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, and business expansions to cater to the needs of the application security market.
